This Stoney Creek Senior Portrait Session was right up my alley! I’m part of a mountain biking family (I’ve ‘retired’ from the sport – lol!) so when Evan’s mom said he wanted to go to Stony Creek Metro Park and bring his mountain bike I was more than game! We had to wait for Evan to get back from racing the Iceman Cometh Mountain Bike Race the first week-end in November. I loved hearing his stories of his many races. My son was just in the Iceman race as well and I’ve attended before so it was easy to relate too and knew of just how challenging his racing has been. And any guy that likes the UP is great in my book! Well, let’s bring on the images! It was chilly but we had fun checking out the trails around the old Sheldon Estate, which has left a few remnants around.
It’s hard to decide but this might be my favorite!
Sheldon Estates Remains
Can’t miss these cool remains from the old Sheldon Estates.
Mountain Biking action shots!
There’s always time to have fun along the way! We caught a few different action shots on the gorgeous leaf covered trails.
Which one is your favorite? I’d love to hear so leave a comment.

So exciting for this Rochester Michigan photographer to plan Avery’s Detroit Senior Portraits this summer! We met at Dessert Oasis with Avery and her mom. We had a fun chat and together we planned out a fun shoot in Detroit. Avery wanted to start at the Belle Isle Conservancy which I thought was perfect! Avery of course looked fantastic and we had fun looking around at the beautiful and interesting plant life. Turns out we have both been buying succulents and other goodies from Eastern Market.

After the Conservancy it was on to the beautiful Belle Isle Fountain! The sky was so perfect for this majestic spot!

We were off to Eastern Market then around The Z Garage and the new Shinola Hotel. Have you checked out MadCap Coffee and new Parker Alley behind the Shinola Hotel? I love the classy shot of Avery and her black dress at the sleek entrance to the Shinola Hotel.She looks great in front of the amber glow and the rich green plants and black brick. A favorite ending spot is the rooftop of the Z Garage. I love when the city lights start coming on!
Avery’s session was so much fun! We had a beautiful evening and it was great walking around and getting the chance to hear about her college applications and plans for the future. It was fun capturing her and her energetic personality among the energy of the city that we love! I’m so glad they chose pArt of Life Photography for Avery’s senior portraits!

What a fabulous Grosse Pointe senior portrait session in Detroit with Francesca!! Francesca attends Grosse Pointe South and was looking forward to a Detroit Senior Portrait Session. We started out in Eastern Market. We found so many beautiful murals that made the perfect backdrop for this darling girl!
Detroit skyline view for Grosse Pointe Senior Portrait Session
After Eastern Market we hit downtown, stopping for a fabulous Detroit skyline view!! Oh my gosh, does this girl shine or what?!? Must be that bright future in front of her!
Next up the DIA! This Italian girl looks fabulous with the white marble! A perfect place for a twirl!
Rounding out our fun evening in Senior Session in Detroit we went to The Belt. Francesca and her mom love the lights. I do too!
I’m so happy to provide Francesca great memories from a fun night in Detroit! It thrills me that she and her family have these portraits to look back at over the years. I think Senior portraits often capture glimpses of the child they were and the adults they are becoming. Senior year is a very special time, a great time for fine art products that stand the test of time. How exciting it is to leaf through a beautiful album, or see beautiful wall prints or smaller easel prints from an image box. I don’t want to have you lose digital images or have creating something with them added to your endless to-do list. I’ll help you choose the perfect products, ready to enjoy!
I’d love it if you contacted me for senior portrait session designed just for you! Contact pArt of Life Photography for Senior Portraits with personality!
Evan rocked his Rochester Michigan senior portrait session and not just because he was a natural in front of the camera and has great style but he also brought along an array of instruments that he plays. Along the Clinton River we had the pleasure of hearing him play!
We started off in downtown Rochester and had some fun along the way. I strive to make my seniors comfortable and bring them to, or happen along, great spots. I love the glow of the summer sun here!
Does he rock the serious face or what? 🙂
I especially loved this part of his senior session when the instruments came out. I need to add a photo of him and his beautiful guitar. Evan plays the saxophone too. He is in the Wind Ensemble at Stoney Creek High School in Rochester Hills. That is the highest level band, by audition only. This year he is also in Marching Band, an asset for sure.
Evan’s mom and I teased that male modeling could be his back up plan but he really is a great model, if his plans for college don’t work out, but I’m sure they will. 😉
It’s been a great summer and I truly treasure the seniors and their parents that chose me as their photographer. I’m so honored to capture this exciting time in their life. I feel a lot of these images capture parts of the younger self as well as the adult they are quickly becoming. I couldn’t believe how different my son looked after being away at college and I treasure his senior portraits more and more all the time. I would love to capture your Senior this fall, or even in the Spring of 2020. Let’s feature what your senior loves! I love working with people after their session to help them with specialized prints and product that you are sure to love and treasure, so let’s talk soon! Please check out my senior gallery! When you select Senior Session on my Contact Form you will be sent a link to my Senior Magazine to review. Thank you!
You should see Sam run! He’s been setting school records and having a great time with track and cross country running. He’s also part of a great relay team! For his senior portraits with this Stoney Creek track runner we saved the best for last and went to Stoney Creek High School track, his home turf for some pictures where Sam spends a lot of time and has made so many great memories! Crazy to think that in barely over a year from now he may be off to do his running for a great college.
Downtown Rochester Senior Portraits
Just had to start the session in Sam’s hometown of Rochester, Michigan for his Senior Portraits. Off to a great start! Sam was so natural in front of the camera. But I was ready to pull out my corny jokes if I needed to break the ice a bit.
Then to Sam’s home turf, the Stoney Creek High School track!
